It's the second major fundraising drive from the gaming YouTuber this year.

JackSepticEye has once again raised a huge sum of money for an incredible cause.

The gaming YouTuber, who has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for various causes over the duration of his YouTube career, helped generate over $100,000 in just five and a half hours.

This is the second major fundraising drive Jack has completed this year; in January, he raised over $200,000 for the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention in response to Logan Paul's infamous 'suicide forest' blog.

Thanking fans for their donations, Jack said, "You are all incredible and I could not be happier. Thank you so much for helping out and changing lives!"

The funds raised from JackSepticEye's charity livestream will be donated to the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, a Chicago-based non-profit that aims to improve the wellness of people living with these two mental health conditions. More than half of the charity's staff live with a "mood disorder" and the support groups they run are all facilitated by people also living with mental illness.
